Happy Hybrid Halloween

Happy Friday! I had some Halloween K & Company rub-ons from last year that I wanted to use up. I thought the digi-papers from the Autumn Harvest pack by Christy Lyle (Sweet Shoppe Designs) were a perfect opportunity to create a Halloween card.

I used the paper distresser on the layers of this card. I also used my sewing machine. The stitches are sloppy (not by design). My machine was not threaded properly or it's a problem with the tension? Oh, well, it adds to the distressed look. I stamped the sentiment on twill tape and got to use my Drippy Goo punch. I love that tool!

I have to give a shout-out to They have an amazing amount of paper-crafting supplies! Their prices were very reasonable. Now through November, the scrapbooking supplies are 20% off. I bought the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper from them and a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser. I also bought a small Tonic Guillotine paper trimmer. I love it!

Tomorrow I'll post pictures of the treat bags I handed out at school today. Thanks for stopping by.
